Capture portraits in superb detail and live for the story

The Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM Medium TelephotoTELEPHOTOA lens with long focal length capable of making distant objects appear nearer thus larger. Essentially, it isolates and magnifies the subject so that it appears as a full image when shooting from a distance. Telephoto lenses are ideal for photographing subjects that are further away, such as wildlife and sports photography. Lens is a fast portrait lens that delivers clear, sharp images full of contrastCONTRASTThe difference between areas of different brightness levels in a photograph: A high-contrast image has a greater difference between light and dark areas, whereas a low-contrast image has a narrow range of tones. Contrast is used to direct a viewer’s attention to a photographer’s subject either with colour contrast (bold versus duller colours) or tonal contrast (bright versus darker tones). and colour with razor sharp detail, ideal for high-resolution sensors. Air Sphere Coating (ASC) helps suppress internal ghosting and flareFLAREOccurs when a point light source such as the sun or an artificial light (that is brighter than the rest of the scene), hits the front element of a lens resulting in a lack of contrast, haze, or unwanted semi-transparent objects being present in the image. You can avoid lens flare with a lenshood or filters, however, the effect is also useful for bringing artistic elements into an image, such as sun rays peaking out from behind a rock formation. while a large f/1.4 apertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur. produces a shallow depth of field.


Large, bright aperture for a focused performance in all light levels

A fast aperture of f/1.4 allows precise focusing and faster shutter speedSHUTTER SPEEDAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Shutter speed is the length of time that a single frame is exposed for, more specifically how fast the shutter opens and closes to permit light entering the lens, to reach the sensor. A slow shutter speed means a longer exposure time useful for motion blur like the silky look of flowing water, whereas a fast shutter speed means a shorter exposure time useful for freezing the appearance of motion in images like a hummingbird in flight. It is measured in seconds starting at 1 second and halving our doubling in time. For example: 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s are all fractions of a second with 1/2s being the longest exposure time, 1/4s half of that and 1/8s another half etc.s even in low light. The shallow depth-of-field afforded by a wide maximum aperture gives pleasing bokehBOKEHPronounced: /ˈboʊkɛ/, /ˈboʊkeɪ/ [boh-kay] or /ˈboʊkə/ [boh-kə] Originating from the Japanese word Boke (ボケ), meaning 'blur' or 'haze', it refers to the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. It has also been defined as the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light. Bokeh depends on various aspects of lens design. Aperture design has the largest effect on Bokeh, and generally a lens with a more rounded aperture produces a more pleasing, natural Bokeh., adding extra depth to portraits.


Smooth & precise 4-stop image stabilisation

Challenging light can make or break a good picture. The 4-stops of image stabilisation will help negate camera shake and give photographers and filmmakers working in difficult shooting conditions an added advantage, just when they need it most.


Responsive, high-speed & precise AF for exceptional focus agility

Thanks to latest AF technology the lens reacts quickly and accurately, allowing near-silent focusing. Clear focus markings and full AF compatibility with all EOS systems make this lens the perfect companion for photographers and filmmakers.


Durable construction, exceptional weather resistance, total compatibility

A durable construction including a shock absorbing front barrel gives high levels of performance in all conditions. Fluorine coatings on the front and rear lens elements help protect against dust and moisture while precise distance markings allow for E-TTL calculations when using flash.


Where artistry meets performance

A camera is only as good as the lens it is connected to, and all L-series lenses have been engineered to perform at the highest level. Full AF compatibility with Dual PixelPIXELThe shortening of 'picture element', a basic unit of programmable colour forming the dots that make up an image. Pixel size depends on a camera’s resolution, which is measured in megapixels (MP), meaning millions of pixels. The more pixels on a sensor, the smaller they have to be to fit. An image's number (or density) of pixels correlate to the amount of information and image holds. Cameras with more pixels on the sensor have a higher pixel density and thus more resolving power, able to capture smaller details with much more clarity and accuracy. Higher resolution images can be cropped more agressively and also produce better quality large prints. CMOS AF sensors means this lens will deliver outstanding results in both stills and video.
